Fondation Caris

Even the greatest artists may need a helping hand at one point or another. This moment may be at the very start of their artistic career, for help towards receiving the best professional training. It may be for assistance in getting the right musical instrument to bring out the best of their musical talent. It may be support towards creating opportunities for them to perform, or to providing a venue for the artist’s work to be enjoyed by the public.
Fondation Caris aims to offer this helping hand to motivated artists, so that their artistic aspirations could come true.
Since 2019, the foundation is proud to support the Prix de Lausanne in the form of a scholarship for a dancer in the junior category, where training in a top-class dance school could make a life changing impact on the dancer’s artistic development.
Furthermore, Fondation Caris is honoured to work with Prix de Lausanne to develop its historic media archive. The rich material that will go into this archive encompass not only the evolution of the Prix and its laureates since 1973, but is also a valuable testament to the history of dance. See more
